One of the most critical undertakings of the Traffic Bureau in recent years has been the town-wide Traffic Calming Initiative. This has been a long-term effort to slow down motorists in problem areas and improve overall safety for pedestrians and motorists alike. The initiative has consisted of Speed Radar Signs for awareness and data collection, temporary and permanent Speed Humps, as well as targeted enforcement utilizing Patrol Officers and Special Law Enforcement Officers. Data collected by the Speed Radar Signs has shown marked improvement in all of the problem locations that the initiative has targeted.
